by law are supposed to tell us these things say that day will come in 2024. it's just 12 years, just 12 years away. and that's a day for people already on medicare and people who are going to be on medicare. medicaid, which is a program for lower income americans. it's an important program. as governor, i dealt with it in my state, but when i was governor, it was 8% of the state budget. today it's 26% of the state budget. it's soaking up every dollar or almost every dollar that would go to higher education. as a result, students around the country are wondering well, why are my tuition fees going up? it's because of washington's medicaid program requiring states to make decisions that soak uponey that otherwise would go for colleges and universities. in our state of tennessee, 30 years ago, the state paid 70% of the cost of going to the university of tennessee. today it pays 30%, and medicaid is the chief culprit. now, everyone knows this. i mean, the president's own debt commission has told him this and suggested a way to deal with it. 40 or 50 of us on both sides of the aisle have bee

had to revisit the healthcare law. clearly president obama does not want us to get that chance. he want his last two years to look just like his first two years of his presidency. it was to perpetuate progressive government for at least a generation. why? he thinks it is the right and to do. to do that, he needs to delegitimize the republican party and house republicans, in particular. he will try to divide us. he will try to get us to fight with each other, question each other so we do not challenge him. if we play into his hands, we will betray the voters who supported us in the country that we serve. we cannot let that happen. we need to be smart. we need to show prudence. what do i mean when i say that? prudence is good judgment in the art of governing. abraham lincoln called it one of the cardinal virtues. it is our greatest obligation as public servants. we have to find the good in every situation and choose the best means to achieve it. the prudent man is like a captain at sea, he does curse of the wind him he uses it to reach his destination. i'm not saying that we should b

janet napolitano long ago. she knows what's coming. when she was a young associate in the phoenix law firm. she claims she had a perm. but i have no memory. [laughter] since then, she has been u.s. attorney, attorney general of arizona, governor of arizona, first woman to chair the national governors' association. obviously i have a great influence over her. we worked closely together when i shared the house homeland and intelligence subcommittee. she made one of her first field of physics to the port of los angeles -- first field visits to the port of los angeles. we will speak on cyber immigration, terrorism and disasters. it all impact the port of los angeles and other critical infrastructures throughout the country. the jurisdiction mergers 22 agencies and departments, its organization does not parallel the committee structure in congress and the threats against our country keep morphing, to name a few of the modest issues that confront janet napolitano every day. yet, she soldiers on and has made significant progress. special kudos to you and the department for the extraordinary

policies more coherent, that a law on the tax side in health care reform side. you are in a position where the economy and locks are removed. the interesting problem is that if it is time to improperly it is there. he may benefit. this could happen. there could be a big economic recovery. maybe you have the interesting aspect that it is good for everybody. it would vindicate a lot of our ideas. it solidified the sense that obama had claimed america. >> this made a strong case for targeting. you have been writing for years numbat while the democrats have their various pressure groups that republicans and conservatives should think hard about parents. we should perhaps target more policies toward the interest of the parent. >> targeting in the sense that it is vital to explain why a conservative policies are good for them. the idea is not that we should think about what we're going to advocate. this is not only impossible for conservatives, it would be very unwise. let me start by saying that i think the danger of choking off the base is vastly overstated. the fear of that is what causes a l

. we will defend our people and uphold our values through strength of arms and rule of law. we will show the courage to try and resolve our differences with other nations peacefully - not because we are naÏve about the dangers we face, but because engagement can more durably lift suspicion and fear. (applause) america will remain the anchor of strong alliances in every corner of the globe. and we will renew those institutions that extend our capacity to manage crisis abroad, for no one has a greater stake in a peaceful world than its most powerful nation. we will support democracy from asia to africa, from the americas to the middle east, because our interests and our conscience compel us to act on behalf of those who long for freedom. and we must be a source of hope to the poor, the sick, the marginalized, the victims of prejudice - not out of mere charity, but because peace in our time requires the constant advance of those principles that our common creed describes: tolerance and opportunity, human dignity and justice. we, the people, declare today that the most evident of

believe in weakness abroad and you believe in taking guns from law abiding citizens, first i might suggest you are probably at the wrong dinner to night. [applause] but the second thing i would tell you is you already have a party that is very well represented in washington, d.c. no the republican party does not need to change our principles. but we might need to change everything else we are doing. here are 7 things i believe we must change if we're to be anyway position to win elections and lead america as we deserve. first, we've got to stop looking backwards. we've got to boldly show what the future can look like with the free market policies we believe in. many of our republican governors are doing just that. conservative ideals are aspirational. the battle of ideas must be waged in the future. the second thing we've got to do, we've got to compete for every single vote. 47% and the 53% and any other combination that adds up to 100%. [applause] president obama t democrats they can continue to trying to divide america in groups with competing interest but we as republicans will have no

that has been the model. oklahoma is one of the first producing states in the nation. those laws have been adopted by every other state that had oil production later on. that type of regulation is already in place, and it is very stringent. we respect the fact that we need fresh water. everybody does. i think the strongest statement that is out there, the former director of the epa said the they have not had one single incident of a fracking contaminating fresh water. that is about as strong as it gets. millions of wells have been fought over 60 years. -- fracked over 60 years. a new renaissance had come into place at the time of my first job in the industry. several thousand barrels of water on each trip and was used -- trip was used. 50-some years ago. >> the power of propaganda is not be dismissed. one not terribly honest image, a guy in colorado lighting is faucet on fire, could put this multi-trillion dollar industry out of business. or practically out of business. >> that is a very graphic attack on -- natural gas occurring -- in south the kidnadakota, the have a flame burn
